Publisher's Summary

As a toddler, in a room illuminated only by the flames of a fallen candle, Jacobia Tiptree watched a man kill her mother. Jake once believed that man to be her father. Now, 35 years after the murder, as the real killer's long-delayed trial is about to begin, the defendant has vanished. Jake tries to distract herself from murder with the constant attempts to keep her 1823 Federal-style fixer-upper from tumbling down on her head. But when her best friend's infant daughter suddenly goes missing, Jake feels her dark past wrapping itself around her...and needless to say, it's nowhere near as charming as her rickety old house.

Missed the Mark

I have been an Audible listener for over 4 years, and this book ranks at the bottom of my selections from Audibile. I have read and listened to all of the "Jake" books and have pretty much liked them. This one, however, has a plot so far away from plausible that it is bordering on foolish. The Maine accents are horrendous (take that from a native Mainer who has lived Downeast for 20 ears), and anyone who lives near the Atlantic Ocean, especially in the cold waters off Eastport, will recognize that spending any amount of time in the frigid ocean waters is deadly. The 3 year old in this book must be bionic to survive her spill in the water and getting thrown against a wooden structure after she had been kidnapped and drugged with opium for a day. I only finished listening to the book because I didn't want to "waste" my Audible credit.

Ends suddenly

I like her books but this one seemed to just end suddenly..or I thought it did. It wasn't as good as some of her other books but was still enjoyable.
